The Grand Mercure Oakridge lived up to all the publicity we had read about it. Only a couple of ks out of Wanaka (so you do need a car), the resort has every amenity you need. We went with friends and shared a two bdrm apartment, each with its own bathroom, and despite the very cold weather, the unit was beautifully warm and had stunning mountain views. The pool complex is amazing, and even if the 'heated' pool wasn't all that hot, the spa pools made up for it. The staff were friendly, service couldn't be faulted, Yes, I'd go back again anytime - possibly in autumn to catch the beautiful colours

Room Tip: We loved being one story up - better views, quiet, very sunny. Also try and get one as far away from...

Everything's great, just the location far from town. If you have a car, its not a problem. Fantastic Views and Super comfotable bed with electric Blankets and in-room heaters.
The only issue is that the hot pool is not exactly hot, but warm so we didnt try as it was the starting of winter and there was only 1 pool in working condition.

One reason why I selected here is because of the hot pools... but everything else is great. So no complaints.

My wife and I stayed 9 nights at the Grand Mercure Oakridge Resort. The setting was breath-taking, with the mountain tops covered in snow and the trees with the various autumn leaf colours. The apartment we had was a 1 bedroom self contained on ground level. The bathroom has a heated floor and heated bath racks(a novelty for a Queenslander). The staff were fantastic and extremely helpful.The resort has several spa's and a heated spring pool.They were great to relax in. Dining at the restaurant was enjoyable, with great food and attentive service.There was an open log fire in the reception area as well as one in the lounge. The resort is a pleasant 3km walk to Wanaka (suggest hiring a car if you plan on doing some grocery shopping). The town has 2 care hire companies with very reasonable rates.The Lake is a magnificent picture in Autumn.

Room Tip: Ground level apartments have direct access whereas 1st level apartments you have to walk up stairs...
